mood board: metallics

my pinterest has been full of dusty-hued metallics lately. living in south carolina, we're pretty much guaranteed an indian summer. so luckily, i don't have to say good bye to the warm tones just yet.

justin knew i really wanted to dust off my french skills, but europe was a little out of the budget. so for our three-year annivesary, he planned us a trip to montreal. what a sweetum! and we had such a good time exploring the city. the people were wonderful, and it was a little mind boggling that you were just a short drive from new york — seriously, everyone was speaking french there! if you like murals, french fries, open air markets, old school european buildings, soccer or smoked meat sandwiches, check out a few of our favorite spots in montreal after the jump!

the station

oh my gosh you guys, has the most recent photo shoot from the station been blowing up your instagram newsfeed? yes? no? if you're not familiar with the station yet, it's a self-described studio space for "weddings, fine art and photography" located at 1172 pendleton street in the village of west greenville. i learned about it by following suzie of statice flowers (who you may remember from my post about the village of west greenville famer's market). she and a couple of friends renovated an old gas station and turned it into what appears to be the cutest little studio around. (sadly, i was out of town for their grand opening, so i haven't actually been there yet; but it's on my to-do list!)

anyways, according to instagram, the ladies at the station teamed up with circa doughnuts, the swamp rabbit cafe and grocery, and the crew over at knack studios to style a photo shoot for the not wedding bridal show, which is coming to greenville september 9th. if you like brunch, shibori and fresh flowers, take a seat because you might pass out when you see these photos. this looks like a brunch made in heaven. and how much fun do those girls look like they are having? i can't wait to see the official photos. bravo ladies, can't wait to see what's next!

six more weeks of summer

it's that time of year inbox is getting flooded with eblasts for jeans, boots and sweaters. while august may be synonymous with back to school, let me tell you something j.crew: a = b but b c. it's not fall yet! just as the ground hog sees his shadow, i am predicting at least six more weeks of summer, six more weeks of 90 degree weather and six more weeks of 80 percent humidity. so while all you new yorkers are putting together your fall fashion guides and sipping chai lattes, i will be here in my messy bun and jorts, chugging water like no body's business and sweating it out with all the rest of the southern girls.

my brother sent me this amazing video the other day, and i just had to share. such a fitting, bitter sweet tribute to the fleeting nature of summer.

farmer's market

i spent most of this past weekend downtown at the (chilly) westin poinsett hotel for the AAF district 3 conference. during a break between sessions, i took a quick stroll through the farmers market to warm up a little bit, and inspiration was everywhere. all the produce is in peak season right now, and the colors are just amazing. peaches, peppers, corn, tomatoes. i wish i could have snagged a few to take home. oh well, here's to a visual feast. greenville, you never disappoint!

mood board: feelin' blue

judging by my pinterest, i guess i've been feeling a little blue lately. not like down in the dumps blue, but more like a cool, calming blue. browsing through these photos gives me a mental respite from the sumer heat and reminds me of the crisp, clear fall days ahead.
